Are you a future focused farmer?
Do you believe in investing for generational benefit?
Let me explain about sustainable Macadamia farming as a business.
It’s not a quick return investment that you plant today and you become millionaire after a month.
This investment need patience since from your initial investment, you get first returns after 3-4 years. And still you will have to wait another three years for you to break even and be profitable.
But why should you invest in this long term project of macadamia farming.
This is a sustainable agribusiness with guaranteed income like the case of real estate.
Once you employ the patience needed you will be in for good ride.
An acre of land holds 80 macadamia trees. With good agricultural practices and weather, each tree can produce between 60kgs – 120Kgs per year of macadamia nuts at maturity.
A kg of macadamia retails between Ksh 100 to Ksh 200.
This has potential to earn you the farmer Ksh (480,000 – 1.9M) per year.
Macadamia tree has a life span of more that 40 years. You will be pocketing above amount per year from your one acre, if you have bigger sized farm the better.
Investing your land under macadamia does not limit you, you have options to intercrop.
Our OxfarmAg agronomists will advice you better.
Depending on your region initial startup cost include. Land, irrigation system, land preparation, certified seedlings, and management.
Other recurring cost after the initial investment are weeds control, irrigation, pruning and general management.
Our estimation for an acre from land buying to setting up a system in place plus fencing ranges between (1m – 3m)
